I think the only thing these delays are affecting are people who care deeply for what Cape Fulgur's doing and are eagerly awaiting this game.
Dunno man. For me, it's exactly because I love the CF guys and what they do that I prefer these delays over a buggy release, because I want to see them succeed. I want to see them grow and succeed and potentially open up a whole new market for smaller Japanese developers.
If anything, these delays show that CF actually cares about their customers. Add the fact they were willing to renegotiate the prices and actually managed to lower them as much as they did, as well as their insistence on having absolutely no DRM whatsoever...
All I can say is that I wish more companies would think like this. But alas.
